From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools: Student receives Certificate of Achievement in dual credit from Bow Valley College

Bria Lajeunesse is the first student from St. Joseph High School to receive a Certificate of Achievement in Dual Credit from Bow Valley College in Calgary. This award will be presented to her during the graduation ceremony.

Dual credit programs allow high school students to take a post-secondary course or a series of courses and earn both high school credits, as well as college/university credentials. The Certificate of Achievement in Dual Credit is awarded to students who have completed four post-secondary courses during high school.

“Bria is an amazing young lady who has worked extremely hard to achieve this honour. We are very proud of her and wish her the best of luck as she pursues her goals at university,” said Principal, Graeme Daniel at St. Joseph High School.

Lajeunesse began dual credit courses in Grade 10 and completed four courses connected to practical nursing throughout her time in high school.  She averaged 91% in these four courses. “Bria is an outstanding student. We wish her the best of luck in her continued studies, where I know she will excel,” said Dual Credit Lead Teacher, Tracey Millar at St. Joseph High School.

RDCRS celebrates International Education Week

As part of International Education Week (November 18-22), Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools would like to celebrate the 57 students from across the globe who are enrolled in the international student services program.

International students enroll in a middle or high school to benefit from the education and cultural experiences while studying in Red Deer. Some students also strive to graduate with an Alberta high school diploma and then attend university, which will allow them to be employable in their home country.

“We celebrate the students who come to our communities to study. We celebrate the diversity and the richness that our international students bring to our classrooms and to our community. In turn, we work together to provide them with a wonderful cultural experience that Red Deer and Alberta has to offer,” said Program Director, Patricia MacRae-Pasula for Red Deer Catholic International.
